Wer weniger von strapaziösen Touren hält, trotzdem tief in die Walliser Täler hineindringen will und dabei auf nicht weniger als 26 Kilometern Singletrails zurückgreifen will, nicht abgeneigt, zuhinterst im Nanztal die Quersingletrailpassage hoch zum Bistinenpass grösstenteils zu laufen, findet mit dieser Enduropiste, abgerundet mit dem Stockalperwegbergabwärtsklassiker nach Brig hinunter, genau das Richtige.

Author’s recommendation

Wer bock auf noch mehr Strampelhöhenmeter hat, verzichtet bei Visperterminen auf den Sessellift und wuchtet sich noch zusätzlich 600 Hm über die Bergzufahrtsstrasse nach Giw hoch.

Bin ab Gspon gefahren. Die Auffahrt zum Gibidumpass ist einfach zu schön. Und ja, hinten im Nanzital gibt es viele Trage- und Schiebestrecken, recht viele. Und ja, insgesamt eine sehr schöne Tour. Und nochmals ja, es dauert wirklich seine mehr als 4 Stunden! Voll ausgepumpt in Brig angekommen. Danke für die Publikation!
